Rubygems not updating
Ryan Leavengood is credited with creating the very first Ruby Gems project back in 2001 (see the on-line Resources).
The project got started but did not really gain enough momentum to take off.
I assume this is something to do with gem hosting moving to github or something…
I haven’t really been following ruby for a year or so so I’m not sure exactly what’s going on.
So, if you are concerned about opening a port on your server, you may want to try the alternate means of access.
The other way to access this documentation is to navigate to the place on the filesystem where gem has generated it.
This makes it easy for you to use your Web browser to browse the documentation for all of the gems that are installed. Also, be aware that the server accepts connections from all hosts that are able to connect to that port.The Rails gem (and the gems it depends on) can be installed with the following command: This gem includes non-Ruby code.When you install it, it will compile the C code as part of the installation process.The developers added an interesting twist by allowing the system to manage multiple versions of the same library easily.Using the versioning scheme from Ruby Gems, it is possible to provide very powerful control over the selection of which version of a library your code will actually use.
